Fall Splendor

Time for one more walk in the Morden area,to see the pretty fall colors.

I enjoy Lake Minniwasta most any time,but it is especially pretty in fall.


This is a fairly small lake but it has great importance to the city.We get most of our water from here.

A small park within the city limits is Livingston Park.I went for a short talk here and even though the colour was not spectacular it was still pretty.

The Morden Park,which has a playground and baseball diamond is the most used park.I enjoy it because it has lots of tree and natural beauty.This bridge crosses the creek.Here I like how the railing of the bridge draw the eye to the trees on the far side.

Back on my own yard the Sumac in all it's beauty in fall.This is the only reason I still have this shrub. I love the fall display it puts on.


By now most of the leaves have dropped and so have the temperatures.
The next pieces of beauty will come when we have snow on the ground.

God is our safe place where we can rest and be encouraged.

  9. As always, you share some of the best photos ever. You do a super job with your camera. What I was referring to in my post today, the end of the acorn has a cute little face.
